Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Paul Shakes
Defenceman Paul Shakes played 21 games for the California Golden Seals in 1973-74. He was a fine playmaker but his defensive play was not consistent enough for long term NHL success.

Born in Collingwood, Ontario, Shakes was chosen 38th overall by the Seals after accumulating 170 points in three seasons with the St. Catharines Black Hawks of the OHA. After scoring 20 goals in 1971-72 the young rearguard was voted on to the OHA first all-star team.

In 1972-73 he registered a decent 42 points as a rookie pro with the WHL's Salt Lake Golden Eagles. The next year he played a quarter of the season in the NHL but was relegated to the minors for the last two years of his career before he retired in 1976.
